How do I ask for SQL Server help on Twitter?

For those of us who have been on twitter for a long time, we are familiar with the #sqlhelp hashtag. However, I was giving a presentation to a user group last night and came across a case where folks in the room didn’t know about the hashtag. I mentioned this was available when someone indicated they were basically a one-man shop and wanted to get more help. That person said he didn’t know about it. Another indicated she hadn’t heard of it, either.

So if you’re in the SQL Server community and you are stuck on a SQL Server related-issue, try out the #sqlhelp hashtag. Try to define your issue as clearly as possible. Likely you’ll see a group of folks with expertise jumping in. That’s one of the great things about the SQL Community: the willingness to help one another.
